Aroma is fruity and yeasty, not strong but still inviting. It pours a dark clear coppery brown with a decent pale tan head. Flavor has a strong fruity overtone, mainly apple with a hint of banana, as well as yeasty and malty components and a fair amount of fruity sweetness. Texture is fairly smooth and has a nice strong fizz, leaving behind a subtle tingle.

Bottle shared by solidfunk (RB), 12oz into a tulip.

Brown, with a cream coloured heard. Ring of retention. Nose of raw banana, Belgo yeast, spice and some bready malt notes. Taste is bready, caramel, yeast, some coriander and interesting spice notes. Medium light feel. Moderate complexity, not bad but not outstanding.

Nuts and caramel. Nice lacing in the snifter. Amber color. Slight nose of toffee. I would call it woody, like it has been aged in something, though apparently not. Yeasty flavors, not so much of the typical Belgian sharpness. Modest carbonation but a pleasant creamy mouthfeel. Rather watery but in a good way. Very drinkable with a little acidity and a pleasant bitter edge.

Bubbly gum and yeast aroma. Only a sipper. Fruity and Orange taste. Middle mouthfeel. Somewhat too sweet.Missed Michigan so thanks for sharing Josh. Tad Above average mouthfeel and large head in pour. OK beer, would like more complexity, less sweet bias.

A: Dark mahogany/caramel appearance with a nice amount of head. Decent lacing, overall a pretty nice looking beer.

S: Smells very tart with citrus and orange peel. A pretty bitter smell, probably my least favorite part of the beer.

T: Best part of the beer. Nice belgian qualities - candied sugar, orange peel and a slightly sweet finish. I'm worried that some past reviewers got infected bottles, because this tastes nothing like cardboard as one reviewer said. Very nice taste, fairly authentic.

M: Nice feel, not overly carbonated but still crisp and clean.

A- A deep, amber orange that looks great when held to a light. The off-white head is thin, but pretty creamy looking. Not too shabby.

S- Fruity and sour smelling with a fragrant floral aspect. I really can't pick out anything more out of this, but what is there is pretty nice.

T- Fruity, sour, floral. I get a bit of cotton candy to it as well. Kind of reminds me of a sour apple juice with a hint of depth to it. Overall, it is really nice, but not that complex and doesn't have much of a finish to it.

M- Tart and clean with a good amount of carbonation. It has a nice body to it.

D- It drinks really nicely for the ABV and how sour it is. This does not really stand up to Belgian counterparts, but if you take it for what it is, it's rather enjoyable.

A hazy amber color pour with a small soapy offwhite head , short lasting but leaving some nice jagged lacing ,medium carbonation. Aroma of spice , clove , banana, and bubblegum, with hints of leather and alcohol . Flavor is lightly sweet with some cereal grain , caramel,earthy, clove, and light alcohol . Lightly bitter with a nice belgin yeast profile , short finish , crisp clean mouthfeel , medium to full body , a very nice beer , from a brewery that I am quickly becoming a big fan of . Nice work .
